"Googlism uses Google to give you one-sentence answers on "who," "what," "where" or "when" a particular term is. Most of it is silly. For example, a "who" search for "Paul McCartney" results in a wacky list of descriptions ranging from "paul mccartney is a great musician" to "paul mccartney is a futile gesture." Whatever that means. But some of it is dead-on. […] The questions that Googlism lets you pose, and the questions that news stories address, are a natural fit."
I was surprised to see that Googlism could be a lot less stupid than Ask Jeeves when you ask it questions.
